Abstract

An economically depressed United States is thrown into civil chaos over conflicts between protest groups and a militarised police force. Caleb Dumas, via an encounter with his neighbour, Carys, learns that he is a hybrid of human and Tskiri, a humanoid species with telepathic and thermokinetic abilities. Caleb and his family get separated during a riot, and he, along with his twin brother, Ben, is arrested and sent to a penal work camp. Meanwhile, as modern society begins to break down, the Askala - a species of vampiric humanoids who live underground - begin attacking humans once more as the elements which kept them underground begin to falter.

As he communicates with Roan, the leader of the attack party, Caleb learns that the Askala and the Tskiri are two halves of the same thing. Caleb accidentally kills Roan with his thermokinetic ability, which only heightens the tension between the Farmers and the Askala.

Carys returns, having tracked Caleb to the Farm through their shared connection, and together the two of them challenge Father, the leader of the Askala for power over the Farm. The Askala Father nearly kills Caleb, but ultimately, he and Carys triumph, placing the responsibility for both the Farm and the Askala compound entirely in Caleb's hands.
